Tribute to German Imperialism

Climbing the 280 odd stairs to the top isn't that hard and it's worth the effort to see the view from the top. Entrance costs 3 Euros which isn't much at all. So unless you're totally out of shape, go for it.

This was part of our guided tour with Insider Tour. If you can see with a guide or mull up on it before you view so much the better. Access is by underground walkways which are not very long, but it is worth it to see this up close as its amazing piece of architecture and with a wonderfull history... More

This was cool to walk up to, get some photos of, it was a lot of steps to get to the top, the view was mainly of the Tier Garden, even the Brandenburg Gate is only barely visible at the end of the road. If you're a fit person and want the challenge climb up it, but don't feel like... More

Walking through and around the Tiergarten is a lovely experience but a visit to the Victory Column is something that if your near here you should visit. For €3 the climb to the top is a little daunting and if you have problems with steep climbs then avoid but if you have no problems then the views are fantastic and... More

If the weather is nice and your feet can take it, walk through the Tiergarten until you see the column. Moved and extended by Hitler, it's an impressive monument. The mosaic around the base is beautiful.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
